What The Descendants Of Hollywood's Biggest Icons Look Like Now

The genetics are strong with these Hollywood icons and their equally-famous children! You may be surprised to learn that some of the biggest and most celebrated names in the biz have talent in their genes. As these "kids" become Hollywood icons like their parents, let's take a look back at where these famous faces started — and where they ended up. After all, growing up in Hollywood isn't for the faint of heart, and not every kid chose to walk in their parents' footsteps.

Liza Minnelli

When Liza Minnelli stepped into the spotlight in the classic 1972 film Cabaret, it was immediately apparent that she’d inherited her mother’s star power. She’s since become an icon of the stage and screen, and just like Judy Garland, she’ll be remembered as having an unparalleled singing voice. 

Albert II, Prince of Monaco

 Yep, Albert II, the Sovereign Prince of Monaco, is actually the son of iconic actress Grace Kelly! Though he has dedicated his life to the crown, he’s also a former bobsled Olympian and vocal environmentalist. He’s only followed in his mother’s footsteps a few times, most notably in a cameo role in The Social Network

Christina Crawford

If you’ve ever seen the film Mommie Dearest, then you’ve heard the alleged story of Christina Crawford, adopted daughter of the legendary Joan Crawford. Christina claimed that Joan’s alcoholism made for a miserable and violent childhood. She’s a writer, bed-and-breakfast-owner, and non-profit worker.

Michael Douglas

Ever heard of him? Just like his dad, iconic actor Kirk Douglas, Michael became one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood. With his two Oscars, five Golden Globes, and one Emmy, not to mention his AFI Lifetime Achievement Award, Michael has definitely achieved the same icon-status as his father.
